After winning the toss Delhi Capitals (DC) captain Rishabh Pant opted to bowl against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 match 46 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in United Arab Emirates (UAE).
MI skipper Rohit Sharma got dismissed at just seven runs by Avesh Khan while Axar Patel got rid of Quinton de Kock for 19 runs to give DC big breakthroughs early on.
MI made brought in Jayant Yadav in place of Rahul Chahar while DC brought back Prithvi Shaw in place of Lalit Yadav. DC will aim to regain their winning touch after losing against KKR.
MI, on the other hand, has endured a tough second phase of IPL 2021 in UAE with Rohit often found wanting with his selection dilemmas in crunch fixtures. DC is second in the IPL points table with eight wins in 11 games while MI has fallen down to the sixth spot with six defeats in 11 matches so far.
Another one for Axar Patel. He bowled a full toss and Suryakumar Yadav hit that straight to Kagiso Rabada at long-on
